Praise

  • “No accessible poet of his generation is half as original, and no poet as original is this accessible.”The New York Times Book Review
     
  • Repast is a thrilling and necessary collection. Anyone who cares about American culture should take it seriously.”—The New Republic
  • “Powell's work shows canonical influence—Williams, cummings, H. D., and Eliot most notably—and yet maintains its own predominant voice, that of a truth teller who metes out accuracy with a fierce but well-spoken intelligence.”?BOMB
  • “[An] amazing triple-course of poetry books. . . . A deserving collection that any serious love of English poetry cannot deny.”Flavorwire
